Summary:
In this study, we conducted the interview survey for extracting empirical knowledge on Mega Urban Transportation Project. We selected fifteen stakeholders of the project who belonged to planning and implementing organizations, contractors, academics and citizens as interviewees. We also collected introductory articles of the project from easily available journals for identifying the empirical knowledge which we found in the interview survey data but not in the introductory articles. From our discourse analysis, we concluded that the interview data was richer in the empirical knowledge especially on the way to improve the understanding of the citizens and the understanding of the relevant administrative bodies about the project than the available articles and that, in the latter case, the interview data contained the knowledge in more concrete manner.
